zLogFabric is an all in one cross-platform logging solution that collects log lines/messages over a messaging system to a central server instance. The modular design enables the server to store, forward, alert, and generate live statistics out of the logged data. It can collect log information from files, syslog, log4j, log4net, and Windows event logs.
Qosmos NI_DUMP (“Network Intelligence Dump”) is Linux-based tool inspired by the popular tcpdump, enabling you to read, print, or save packet data related to traffic traveling over your network. Qosmos NI_DUMP is a light and versatile packet capture tool that recognizes 120 of the most commonly used protocols and applications, including SMTP, HTTP, MySQL, and NFs. This represents a small but useful sample of the full Qosmos Protocol Portfolio, comprising over 300 protocols and 4000 metadata. Unlike conventional packet dump tools, Qosmos NI_Dump can identify protocols using non-standard TCP or UDP ports, and incorporates an easy-to-use advanced filter expression language that enables users to zoom in on data of most interest to them, such as FTP transfers matching a particular filename or HTTP requests containing a particular keyword.
AppDynamics an application performance management solution for mission-critical Java applications. It can organize user requests and business transactions, monitor business transaction health, identify and diagnose slow requests, identify and diagnose errors, and drill down. It is built from the ground up for highly distributed service-oriented environments. It has fast root cause diagnostics at the method/class level, but creates no more than 2% overhead, even in high-volume production deployments. It can not only manage applications, but dynamically scale them in cloud and virtual environments.
Crash Dummy is a Java Web application to help IT professionals set up Java application server environments. It has several features to help make this easier, including simulating failures and diagnostics. Crash Dummy is particularly helpful for setting up complex clustered environments and monitoring infrastructure.
The Pigs Can Fly Site Monitor monitors your Web sites to ensure that they are up. It has configurable polling intervals (so users on a limited data plan can poll less frequently). It supports multiple sites, optional alarm suppression if Google fails to load, simple regular expression and substring matching on the result page, and alarms if one of the sites is covered on Slashdot or Reddit.
Inject is program which can generate, inject and withdraw BGP routes, with a primary focus on network testing. It supports route and peer flapping, generation of random routes with (pseudo) random BGP attributes via a Cisco like CLI. Other features include a configuration file based on XML, test cases, help functions, and displaying of peer and route information.
Fing is a command line tool for network and service discovery. It provides you a complete view of any network in a very short time. Its smart discovery automatically detects the network type and uses the best technique to scan it. The best results are achieved on Ethernet networks (including Wireless ones), where Fing is able to detect all network hosts, firewalled ones included. The service discovery feature quickly detects active TCP services on a target host or network. Fing is based on Look@LAN.
Nagios is a host, service, and network monitoring system that will watch your network and alert you to problems before your clients or end-users do. The system runs checks on hosts and services that you specify using plugins that return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the system will send notifications to system administrators so that they can take action on the problem. The JumpBox for Nagios gives you a head start to using the system. It eliminates the complexity involved in getting the application installed, and allows you to focus on the configuration for your specific environment. Since Nagios is based on plugins, depending on what you want to do this will vary in complexity.
